ACAS Talks, Dispute Committee, Financial support for strikers

Talks aimed at resolving the dispute continue to make progress, with the aim of producing an offer from the company which members can vote on. You might think things have gone quiet, but there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes. The position is currently still too fluid for us to be able to make a written report on each of the issues or to publish draft agreements. However, we intend to hold meetings to report back from the talks early in June.
During the strikes, our open “strike committee” meetings proved a useful tool for members to get involved in discussing and deciding on the tactics of the dispute between full members’ meetings. We plan to hold a lunchtime “Dispute Committee” meeting:
12:30-13:15, Thursday 31st May
Conference Room 35 G CR2 (MAN35 ground floor)

All members are welcome to come along.
Hardship Payments and Additional Strike Assistance were paid out from our strike fund long ago. We are now told that Dispute Benefit cheques from union head office have been posted out to our home addresses.

Members nationally took industrial from 28 February including 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike, after 12 days of local strikes in Manchester.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED but members have voted by 92% to reject a company offer.
